Lexmark Z22-Z32 Series networked via windows 2000


I have a Lexmark Z22-Z32 Series printer plugged into the parallel port on a windows 2000 box. I have another windows 2000 box on the same network and that prints fine with the networked printer, so I know the network is fine.

I added the printer with the CUPS web admin.

http://localhost:631/admin/?op=add-printer.
name = LexmarkZ
Location = smb://usernameassword@server1/LexmarkZ
Description = Lexmark Z22-Z32 Series

http://localhost:631/admin
device = Windows printer via SAMBA

http://localhost:631/admin
Device URI = smb://usernameassword@server1/LexmarkZ

http://localhost:631/admin
Make = Lexmark

http://localhost:631/admin
Model = Wasn't there so I picked the closest match. Lexmark Z42


Not sure what to do but I do have support for Unix printing installed on the Windows 2000 box under windows components if that helps.

http://www.linuxprinting.org/
that website is the best i can tell ya...just go look around there and see what you can find...i have a lexmark z25 and there is not a chance in me getting it going yet...not like i try too often, but the support for lexmark is absolute crap, so good luck getting your printer going and maybe do a little search for your printer model in the fourm on that site...and see what people have had success with it...i found a couple of people....but the closest i have gotten my printer to go is to NOT print without errors...i have got it to the point of going through the motions but nothing spits outta the printer....so anyways....its going to be a battle getting it to work...and like i said, that website above is all i can recommend.

I did it.
I downloaded Z32_ENG_US-1.0-5.TGZ from http://drivers.lexmark.com. After I extracted, it was a file called lexmarkz22-z32-1.0-5.i386.rpm. Installed without problems. I then tried the CUPS www admin tool but that didn't work because the driver I just installed wasn't in the driver list. I started printerdrake found in the Mandrake Control Center under Hardware. I clicked the add a new printer button and followed the wizard. The new driver was there and all went well first time without problems. LinuxQuestions.org is the best. Thank you.
